Melbourne to host World Cup of Golf in 2018

From ESPN - December 4, 2017

Melbourne will host golf's World Cup for the third-straight time, with the nation-based tournament to be held at the Metropolitan Golf Club in November 2018.

The four-day event will remain in the sandbelt after Royal Melbourne hosted in 2013 and Kingston Heath last year.

It continues a golfing resurgence for Melbourne, which had been starved of top-line golf since the Australian Masters was discontinued from 2015. The city has also secured the 2019 Presidents Cup and Australian Open for 2020 and 2022.

World Cup organisers noted that 17 of the world's top-50 golfers, including Adam Scott, Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler, contested the previous edition.
